About Kiki and Nai'a Hawai'i

Kiana Clifford is the Designer & Maker behind KiKi and Naia Jewelry. 

With her daughter as her muse and inspiration, Kiana pours her love of art and beauty into every custom piece to create her line of wearable art.  

Born and raised on the Big Island on her family coffee farm, Kiana indulged her love of adventure, art, and travel by living in New York, London, Italy and Germany before returning home again.  Many years later and 22 years into a corporate career, Kiana was inspired to take a jewelry-making class and was immediately smitten. 

Fueled by a desire to be an entrepreneurial inspiration for both of her children, Kiana started selling pieces on Etsy and at local craft fairs.  As her skill grew, she was able to shift completely out of corporate work and focus solely on Kiki and Nai'a Hawai'i.  Kiana now designs and creates her line full-time using fine metals and other materials that speak to her love of beauty and the Hawaiian Culture. 

When not creating jewelry, Kiana loves to spend time with her family, surf and craft amazing lei from her garden.
